The Friends of EDL

UPDATE: The bookshop is now open! Come in any time the library is open. 

The Friends of Edythe Dyer Library is a small group of volunteers dedicated to enhancing our library through fundraising and advocacy efforts. The Friends received a 2018 Spirit of America Foundation Tribute for commendable community service! New members are always welcome.

Here are a few of the many ways the Friends’ Bookshop sales support the library:

  • Funded creation and maintenance of the front garden space
  • Purchased our AED
  • Purchase Penobscot Theatre and Discovery Museum passes
  • Purchased tables and chairs for public and staff rooms
  • Sponsor Meet the Candidates evenings
  • Sponsor seasonal tea parties with speakers
